Snowcat Bursts Into Flames @ Keystone Ski Resort

By

Pretty sure Keystone wanted to keep this one on the low, but Summit County Fire posted a picture of one of the snowcats ablaze and now the local news picked up on it.  There’s something fishy about the post, as they don’t specify what day this happened (one morning last week) or provide any details about the circumstances surrounding the incident. Here’s what the firefighters had to say:

“Here’s something you don’t see every day: A Sno-Cat on fire! Our Engine 11/C-shift crew was called to Keystone ski area early one morning last week on what was reported to be a fully-involved vehicle fire. They had to be shuttled up to the scene at the top of Dercum Mountain by a fleet of (not-on-fire) Sno-Cats driven by wonderfully helpful resort staff. We put out the fire, but the damage had been done, and the rig was a complete loss. Fortunately, no one was injured. But if you find more bump runs at the ski area this week, this might be the reason.”
